COOLA SPF 30 Matte Finish Cucumber for Face

COOLA’s mineral sunblock is everything we want in a daily SPF. The updated, eco-friendly formula is made with 70 percent organic ingredients and protects from both the UVA rays that lead to premature aging and the UVB rays that cause painful burns. Great for all skin types—especially those with breakout-prone and hyper-sensitive complexions—the transparent cream dries to a flattering matte finish, doubles as a primer, and won't leave behind a chalky white residue. The refreshing cucumber scent gives us yet another reason to love it.

I always buy foundation that has SPF in the formula so I don't find it necessary to have a base with SPF as well.

Contradiction on the description?

Okay so i like the sample it was pretty small thought but it smells really good. Ive been wanting to buy a sunscreen for my face but can never find one that is good with my type of skin, and this one seems to be perfect. The only issue that i have here with this that, the description above says it has instant effects, but if thats so, then why do i have to apply it an hour before stepping outside? Thats what the description on the birchbox card said. So im really confused, and if indeed i have to wait an hour to step outside then its totally not worth my money =(
I just hope the description in the card was wrong.

the strong fragrance is overpowering

I can't get past the scent. I put some of this on the backs of my hands before I even thought of applying to my face. Good thing I did. The heavily perfumed scent gave me a headache. I don't know why a product like this would want to be heavily perfumed- especially one that claims to be organic. This was very disappointing to me. I can't recommend this one to anyone.

left my skin an oily greasy mess

I don't have overly oily skin, but when applied over my regular morning skin regimen, this made me so shiny and slick I had to set everything twice with powder just to keep from smearing. Which stinks, because between the smell and the organic ingredients, I really wanted to like this product.

Smell good sunburn lotion

Although this sunscreen smells great and goes on smoothly it just does not work. Having applied correctly and at least 30 minutes before sun exposure I have burned twice now and have only sampled it two times. Today I was only in the sun for an hour. Be careful (buyer beware) with this product I now have read other reviews of being sunburned while using this product.

I used this product and was really excited because of the matte finish. However, I used very little and it turned white and would not even rub in. I tried to let it dry and rub it in more but I eventually had to wash it off. The regular COOLA SPF face is great....this one not so much. And it is way to expensive for the amount and the product.

Too chalky and white
Purchased

I LOVED the description of this product and was so excited to purchase and try it. Unfortunately, part of it's description wasn't true for me. It didn't full absorb into my skin and left an obvious white, chalky layer on my skin. I had to wash it off and use another product. My friends teased me that I looked like a geisha... and they were not far off. I promptly returned it. If you have very fair skin, this might work for you, but I have light skin with yellow undertones and it didn't work for me.

Pore Clogging
Purchased

Left a white film on my face. I broke out after using this for a week on vacation. Seemed to really clog up my pores and caused milia. I haven't had any skin problems in years and this was the only new player in rotation. Not impressed.

Left white tint on face!
Sampled

Perhaps I used too much of the product, but this left a white residue on my face after application. Maybe this product is not for those with darker skin (I am olive/tan). I was able to rub my face for a while to avoid walking out the door with a white tint, but some of the product pooled around my acne -- therefore I was still left with white spots on my face!

I am not impressed with this product. It is extremly dry. It is hard to smooth on your skin. as soon as you squeeze it out of the tube and start to smooth it in, it dries instantly into a hard to rub in powedery substance.
